Thank you to everyone who showed up for a busy, friendly East Sunday Parkways! Bike Farm’s repair stand was occupied during most of the event. Volunteers helped cyclists adjust derailleurs, pump up tires, repair brakes, and fit handlebars and saddles for comfort. It was a great event and we look forward to participating in the North Portland Sunday Parkways this July.
The shop was also featured in Neighborhood Notes as a local resource for bike maintenance. Check out the article here: http://www.neighborhoodnotes.com/news/2013/05/biking_in_portland_where_to_learn_and_ride/
An excerpt: “Midway between the two aforementioned co-ops is northeast’s volunteer-run, nonprofit collective Bike Farm where you can access tools and learn to service your own bike with guidance from on-site experts. Become a member, pay a $5 drop-in rate, or do work-trade to earn time on a bike stand (or use one for free every first Thursday on Open Shop Night). Plus, every other Tuesday, Bike Farm hosts its bimonthly Women and Trans Night.”
Hooray for fixing your own bike! Read the article to discover other sweet resources around town.
